Network Analyst - Street Intersection Attribution

Hey Everyone,

Thanks in advance for any help. Here's my situation. I used network analyst to develop a street network. This process created a network junction feature class. What I want to do is use this junction feature class as my intersection feature class. The main reason for this is that the junctions are automatically generated when the network is rebuilt - this eleviates the process of manually having to create the intersection point.

The problem that I am having is that I cannot add custom attribution to the junction feature class. I would really like to add attribution for participating streets and traffic control devices. Does anyone know if this is possible? When I try to add attribution to the network junciton FC, I get the error message "Failed to add one of the spedified fields. System managed tables can not be modified."

One appraoch that I have been considering would be to generate a non-spatial table to house the custom attribution and utilize a spatial view on the database end to create a new "Intersection" feature class. This would utilize the auto-generated junction geometry and allow for custom attribution.

Any advice would be great!
